1984 Interview: Yuri Bezmenov, KGB Defector, Ministry of Truth

Deception Was My Job . . .

Soviet Subversion of the Free-World Press (1984)

Here is G. Edward Griffin’s shocking video interview, Soviet Subversion of the Free-World Press (1984), where he interviews ex-KGB officer and Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov who decided to openly reveal KGB’s subversive tactics against western society.

Yuri explains his activities in the KGB, if you are familiar with George Orwell’s landmark novel “1984” you could say that he worked for the Soviet Ministry of Truth. Yuri states that 85% of the KGB’s resources were not devoted to cloak and dagger type spy activities, but were directed instead towards their world-wide propaganda efforts and mass brain-washing techniques.

The Fate Of Our Nation Rests in Obamacare Decision

There is more to the coming Supreme Court decision expected to be handed down as early as next June than merely whether all or part of Obamacare will be upheld. This decision will actually decide whether the Constitution actually means anything today or not. The Constitution is a document which limits federal power, and without the limitations spelled out in the Articles, and the first ten amendments, commonly known as the Bill of Rights, our country, and the Constitution would never have been ratified in the first place.

That’s right, the first ten amendments were added to the Constitution before it was ratified by the 13 States, which were then operating rather poorly under the Articles of Confederation.

Here is an interesting article from American Thinker:

. . . In a 2006 interview with PBS, Roberts discussed the most revolutionary aspect of the American Constitution, which is that it is the law over government and not merely a political document melded at will by political leaders.  Chief Justice John Marshall’s landmark opinion in Marbury v. Madison, Roberts notes, “says, what is the Constitution?  It’s law.  It’s law that the people have established to control this new government.”

In this regard, the ObamaCare case is very much about more than just ObamaCare.  It is about the extent to which the Constitution is binding as law that controls government, and what the Supreme Court will do to enforce that law on government.

Thomas Paine wrote, “A constitution is not an act of government, but of the people constituting a government, and a government without a constitution is power without right.”  Political thinker Sir Kenneth C. Wheare referred to a constitution as “the collection of rules which establish orgovern the government.”

In Marbury v. Madison, Marshall called the United States Constitution our paramount law — so much so that laws passed by the people’s representatives are void if repugnant to that fundamental, supreme law.

Earth Day 2012: An Economic Suicide Pact?

It’s difficult . . .

to put things in perspective at times. A little over 150 years ago we fought a great Civil War. Armies of foot soldiers walked, and teams of horses hauled the supplies. Oil had not yet been discovered near Titusville, PA, and Thomas Edison and NikolaTesla were not yet exploring the wonders of AC and DC electrical current. Tiny Wabash, Indiana became the first electrically lighted city in the world a mere 132 years ago.

Such wonders of advancement, dare I say progress,  that we have witnessed in such a short time since then. America has been blessed with huge supplies of coal, oil, and natural gas, which allowed us to harness energy beyond the simple mill-dam crushing wheat seed into flour. Coal was easily mined, which heated our houses and buildings much more efficiently than using wood as our predecessors did, and with the discovery of electricity, coal could be used to make steam to efficiently drive electrical turbines and distribute power wherever a power-line could reach.

We owe our current modern way of life to these early and unencumbered scientists and pioneers.

Why are some in our society doing their best to convince us to enter into a suicide pact? Here is what I would do if I wanted America to fail. What would Henry Ford say if he were alive today?

Plentiful, cheap energy is what has allowed and driven our nation to be great. 

Blast From the Past: ‘Zo Delivers A History Lesson

Alfonzo Rachel delivers

an excellent rant and history lesson concerning race and politics since the Founding Days. He only got one thing wrong concerning American Indians and the 3/5 rule. A very minor quibble.

Zo points out facts and a little speculation in this 18 minute piece that is not being taught in school, yet should be a point of discussion in every American History class.

I’ve been following this guy for years, and this is easily one of his best of the best.

NASA Engineers, Astronauts Letter to the Administrator

Joint letter to NASA Administrator blasts agency’s policy of ignoring empirical evidence

HOUSTON, TX – April 10, 2012.

49 former NASA scientists and astronauts sent a letter to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden last week admonishing the agency for it’s role in advocating a high degree of certainty that man-made CO2 is a major cause of climate change while neglecting empirical evidence that calls the theory into question.

The group, which includes seven Apollo astronauts and two former directors of NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, are dismayed over the failure of NASA, and specifically the Goddard Institute For Space Studies (GISS), to make an objective assessment of all available scientific data on climate change. They charge that NASA is relying too heavily on complex climate models that have proven scientifically inadequate in predicting climate only one or two decades in advance.

H. Leighton Steward, chairman of the non-profit Plants Need CO2, noted that many of the former NASA scientists harbored doubts about the significance of the C02-climate change theory and have concerns over NASA’s advocacy on the issue. While making presentations in late 2011 to many of the signatories of the letter, Steward realized that the NASA scientists should make their concerns known to NASA and the GISS.

“These American heroes – the astronauts that took to space and the scientists and engineers that put them there – are simply stating their concern over NASA’s extreme advocacy for an unproven theory,” said Leighton Steward. “There’s a concern that if it turns out that CO2 is not a major cause of climate change, NASA will have put the reputation of NASA, NASA’s current and former employees, and even the very reputation of science itself at risk of public ridicule and distrust.”

Select excerpts from the letter:

  • “The unbridled advocacy of CO2 being the major cause of climate change is unbecoming of NASA’s history of making an objective assessment of all available scientific data prior to making decisions or public statements.”
  • “We believe the claims by NASA and GISS, that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated.”
  • “We request that NASA refrain from including unproven and unsupported remarks in its future releases and websites on this subject.”

Quote of the Day

If you are taught bitterness and anger, then you will believe you are a victim. 

You will feel aggrieved and the twin brother of aggrievment is entitlement. So now you think you are owed something and you don’t have to work for it and now you’re on a really bad road to nowhere because there are people who will play to that sense of victimhood, aggreivement and entitlement, and you still won’t have a job.”
